I was reading Douglas Coupland‘s new book (JPod) on my flight home from
Michigan and was pleasantly surprised to find that on page 258 is a
to most of Photoshop 7.0 engineers and managers (taken from the
splash screen).

His book is filled with random and often gratuitous references to many
mundane things we often face/see/are bombarded with in this ‘internet-era’ –

minds of our customers…cool. :)

Say it with me: Seetharaman Narayanan, Seetharaman Narayanan… ;-)
